International Value – From playing defense to playing offense

Presented by

Michael O'Brien and Marina Severinovsky, Schroders QEP team

About this talk

Will the COVID-19 crisis prove to be the catalyst to a long-overdue inflection point in markets, in terms of reversion in geographic leadership and sector leadership between defensive growth and cyclicals? Join us as QEP Senior Analyst & Portfolio Manager Michael O’Brien and Marina Severinovsky, Investment Director, look back at the volatile first part of 2020 to isolate the themes that mattered most to performance, from focusing on business quality and financial strength to avoiding dividend cutters. They will also look ahead (with the aid of data going back as far as the Great Depression) to examine how historical patterns could be repeated, and where they believe extremes in valuations and market concentration are creating both vulnerabilities -- and opportunities.
